Question

Categories and Sub Categories


Hi, I apologize in advance if this has already been asked. I did take a good look around first.

I have a menu set up in Word Press using li tags. The menu is split into Categories and sub-categories. I'd like to display the categories and sub categories from ecwid utilizing the style of these menus.
  1. Can you point me in the right direction of which pieces of code I need to edit please, and
  2. do I need use your css tags or can I use my own?

Thanks

Regards

Alistair

Hi Alistair,

Yes, you can create a custom menu with links to the Ecwid categories. You don't need to use our CSS code, just perform the following steps:

1. Create a custom menu with dummy links.
2. Get URL's of the Ecwid categories using this method: http://kb.ecwid.com/How-can-I-link-t...ct-or-category
3. Replace the dummy links with the actual ones.

Thank you Eugene, that was really simple
Just one other question for you please:
Setting up the main categories is fine using this method, but I really should have called the 'sub categories' 'products'.
As the products will changing all the time (deleted, updated etc), is there a method of having the product names - that appear under each category - update dynamically?

Thanks

Alistair

Alistair,

Yep, it is possible. You should use our Product API to get the actual list of products and their URLs: http://kb.ecwid.com/Product-API#ProductAPI

I tried to implement this, but I cannot get the url's through wix since the html block is set up completely separately. Is it possible to get the url's a different way?
